resequencing because they're worried -- they're having a fight over the debt ceiling right now and they'd rather have a fought over the debt ceiling in three months, i don't have a problem with that, i need to hear that commitment, they've been asked and they're going to be asked again today at the conference meeting, to make the commitment that we're going to be on a path to balance in 10 years. if they're willing to fight with us on that, i think i an stand with them. >> thank you. you talked about this 10-year balance, you've also talked about the sequester for things like holding the line on the sequester. what specifically does that mean? does that mean you're going to hold the line on a set of principles to try to replace those cuts with other cuts, or are they just going to let the sequester take effect? what's your understanding? >> the numbers with the sequester is either sticking to that number so letting the sequester take effect or replacing the cut in the military and other programs with other cuts that get us to 974. so we're -- if you're ticking to the -- sticking to the
there is a backdrop to this speech. the backdrop to this speech is the fact that he was strong on the debt ceiling and has been strong on the debt cereal something far. he was strong on gun rights. he came out worried about legacy and he's going to build the legacy through strength. i understand why people are dubious, but this was a magnificent speech in that it was about "we," other people. you talk about immigration you talk about a poet of cube an disaccidentdissent who is gay. he talked about stone wall and seneca walls and selma benchmark historical moments for women, black americans gay americans, this was a spectacular speech because of that. it is words but i think he's starting to see the "we" in this and he wants to lead all of us. >> cenk: i saw your tweet from earlier saying if this was for mitt romney you wouldn't here about seneca or selma that's a good point. here is a clip that sounds perfectly good but there is one big issue if you ask me. let's watch it together. >> obama: we must act knowing that our work will be imperfect. we must act knowing today's victories will only be par
it's not. i think the reality is congress will do the right thing. possibly suspend the debt ceiling, allow for, you know, lenders to get paid both, you know, people holding treasuries as well as people who are actually lending the government money expecting a refund. gerri: if this gambit from the republicans does not work, are some at risk after not getting the refund? >> anything's possible. look, at the end of the day, if the ceiling is not raised and restrict expenses somewhere, refunds could be down the road. irs says if you electronically file, expect a refund within ten days, similar to last year, but, you know, they could say that now not knowing what's going to happen just, you know, a few weeks from now. gerri: we have no idea. the reality is the irs does not control this. >> absolutely not. gerri: that they have to react,d it takes along time to make changes that need to be made. now, i know you're against refunds, but there's people out there who try to get them every year, like to get them. what's your problem with the refund? >> you loan the government money, zero perc
debt ceiling bill. john boehner will be housing a meeting with key republican leaders at 5:00 p.m. eastern time. >> reporter: >> that's coming up and john harwood is here with a preview before that meeting. >> reporter: interesting to see how john boehner describes it, but there are some signs that the whole debt ceiling threat as a source of instability for markets and the economy may be melting away before our eyes. house republicans are going to take up a bill tomorrow afternoon to extend the debt ceiling, not just to april 15, but to may 18. they are going to do it with a mechanism that would allow them in effect to suspend the debt ceiling, not even to raise it making it easier for conservatives to vote for it and senate democrats say they plan to take up that proposal and expect to pass it by an overwhelming margin sometime within the next week or so. now, jay carney at the white house today for his part said we wouldn't a longer term extension than that but the president is not going to block this if it clears the congress. here's jay carney. >> the bill still has to over
they were going to extend the debt ceiling for at least another three months right now without a big fight, they thought they were making gestures that the president would respond to. they were surprised that he gave this kind of rather liberal speech with his agenda for a second term yesterday. >> eight big question is, what happens next. it's a big speech. it lays out big markers. the base, whether it's a democrat in congress or grassroots movement, they were thrilled with the speech, the progressive movement was really happen. the republicans were disappointed. you see that sign behind john boehner, no budget, no pay. there's a chance to still do some business here but the signals have republicanis thinking wait a minute. you remember the pressure from tea partiers and others it's hard to begin with. if they think the president is going to for everything they give him and ask for more, if he's not going to push for more cuts but demand republicans do more, that's the mistrust that's been magnified because of that speech. >> i think the news conference outside of houston, the harris coun
on in the present debt ceiling controversy in washington. >> my favorite book just recently, and i tell you it is $9.95 on amazon, is president kennedy's book called "nation of immigrants." it was written in the early 1960's. it will take you a couple of hours to read it again. it is a fabulous book and makes you realize that nothing has changed in the last 50 years. he talks about why we are a nation of immigrants and why that has been the strength of america. so, yes, we are all a nation of immigrants. we should remember that in these debates. but florida has an interesting process, something the all states should adopt, but every 20 years, a group of 30 citizens are awarded by the governor, the speaker of the house, the senate, supreme court, to rewrite florida's constitution, every line of it. it does not go to the legislature. all those pesky lobbyists out there do not get a chance to lobby one way or the other. goes right to the citizens of the state. took us two years to do that. we look at these issues. in florida's constitution, a quality education is now in the florida constitution. i do b
. which makes me start to get a little nervous. let's talk about the debt ceiling extension as well. does this take anything off the table for the market or is the market over watching what's going on in washington? if you look at what happened with the fiscal cliff, how that was solved within 24 hours to go. a lot of traders and investors anticipate a similar situation with the debt ceiling. whether we get this extension of three months or whether overnight some kind of resolution to it is being done it seems like the general consensus is this thing will be fixed and we will be able to move on and look forward past it. there's a blast of winter rushing through the u.s. this week. what will that mean for natural gas prices? we have seen natural gas prices climb aggressively off their lows. we pushed through 350 last week. we also had a draw down in their storage report. we're expecting another draw down going forward. but as far as other similar markets like crude oil and heating oil we've also seen quite a bit of demand for the. crude oil has a little bit more geopolitical tension so you
getting word that as expected the house will vote on the debt ceiling limit for another few months, pushing it back to may 19. the report on this possibility yesterday in washington for the inauguration, this this might be a face-saving gesture on the part of republicans to gather their duffs and buy some time with a president who at least for the time being is more popular than they. what do you make of the timing of this vote? -- and what they will gain? >> i think the republicans were concerned about public perception of them not doing anything and i think it's a bad idea. i mean, i think this kicks the can down the road. move people say, we want a solution today. we don't want to keep having this conversation. every couple of months, we talk about the debt ceiling, what good is a ceiling if you keep raising it and you don't make spending cuts to keep yourself under that number? it has no purpose. >> neil: i want to take a look at the corner of wall and broad. many argue the reason why it was up 62 points is the fact that, whew -- it's a relief they won't bring this to the brink
including raising the debt ceiling, which the house expected to vote on tomorrow. in the inaugural address, he made history as the first president to mention the word "gay" and "gay rights." >> if we are truly created equal surely the love we commit to one another mutt be -- must be equal, as well. >> there will be one more party tonight, the obamas and friends celebrate with campaign and white house staffers at inaugural ball where supposedly lady gaga is performing. >> the president is sworn in on two bibles one from martin luther king and the other from abraham lincoln. traffic and weather, together, next on the abc7 morning news. here is the golden gate bridge, dry as a bone. but maybe, maybe, maybe there is rain in the forecast. >> and a deal to sell sacramento kings so they can move to seattle. the ripple effect that >> welcome back, almost everyone is just a bit warmer than yesterday so we do not have as frost. 32 at concord and fairfield is 31. upper 30's around the bay to 40 in oak and 47 in san francisco. this afternoon, low-to-mid 60's with filtered sunshine because of the high

the national debt ceiling. republican leaders announced today the extension lets the government continue borrowing money until may 19. the current debt ceiling-- $16.4 trillion-- could be reached as early as mid-february. the house bill does not specify a new dollar amount. it does mandate that congress approve budgets, or lawmakers won't be paid. major league baseball lost two hall of famers over the weekend. st. louis cardinals great stan musial-- "stan the man"-- died saturday at his home just outside the city. he played 22 years, helping the cards win three world series titles in the 1940's. he was widely regarded as one of game's greatest hitters ever. stan musial was 92 years old. also saturday, former baltimore orioles manager earl weaver passed away, during a caribbean cruise. weaver won the world series in 1970, and took his teams to three others. along the way, he gained fame for his fiery, in-your-face confrontations with umpires. he was ejected from games 91 times over 17 seasons. earl weaver was 82 years old. >> brown: finally tonight, a closing reflection on the inauguratio
of the result and to use the debt ceiling as a lever i think is a very serious mistake. after the credit of this country was downgraded, a senior director of standard & poor's -- this was right after it -- said the following about american political institutions that they were undermined -- i quote -- that people in the political arena were even talking about a potential default. and essentially this bill does that. and if i might say to mr. ryan, we're on the same floor. we talk to each other a lot anyway. i think it will be helpful in regular order if there were a budget brought to the floor of the house that had bipartisan support and was a product of regular order with strong bipartisan support in the budget committee and on the floor. thank you. >> thank you very much. >> we look forward to your support. [laughter] >> mr. ryan. >> participation. >> a new issue has just been brought up by the gentleman and that is perhaps the timing, do you believe that this is timely and that you've given people an opportunity rather than waiting until the last minute and thus getting to a deadline
the debt ceiling mid-february. this pushes this whole thing back a couple months. doug mckelway is live in washington with the story. doug, surprise, surprise, right? >> reporter: surprise, surprise, martha. this is the no budget, no pay bill. it would suspend the debt limit until may 19th at which time the debt limit would automatically increased beyond the present $16.4 trillion to accommodate whatever the u.s. borrowed at that time. it makes the extra borrowing contingent upon this. if either chamber of congress fails to pass a budget by april 15th. all income earned by members of that respective chamber would be settle aside. no budget, no pay. republicans ha been frustrated by the senate's failure to pass a budget the last four years. in his inaugural address yesterday some say the president set a not so conciliatory tone about the debt ceiling and other impasses with the gop-controlled house. >> we can not mistake absolutism for principle or substitute speckel for politics, or treat name-calling as reasoned debate. >> reporter: couple blocks away at a breakfast at a restaurant he
is done in washington, d.c. by crisis. everything is a crisis. whether it's the debt ceiling, whether it's sequestration, doesn't matter, whatever it is. everything is done by crisis. and we're going to push this forward. there is going to be a vote in the house tomorrow. president has already said if it's in the legislation, he'll sign it. so there is an opportunity. i've talked to joe. joe signed on to this thing and he's promised me that he'll trio get some of his colleagues on his side of the aisle to support the idea. >> brian: senator, i thought what was most encouraging to come out of the sunday shows david plouffe says the president finds it encouraging. so the white house would support a move like this. so instead of saying the debt ceiling is here, we're not going to move. you're saying we're moving ahead of the crisis. can you get a budget together in three months? is that possible? >> it is. in fact, you're required by law to have it ready by april 1. the bum jet should be completed by april 1. let me take a step further if i may and that is what's the purpose of having a bud

, but you know, with the debt ceiling, i think republicans were actually trying to extend an olive branch and found themselves rebuffed yesterday. if we had said pick the most controversial, divisive issues in the country right now, they are the issues that president obama chose to speak of yesterday. he's got a state of the union coming up in a couple of weeks. i would have expected that that would be a place where he laid out his agenda, his priorities, his specifics but i didn't expect it in yesterday's inaugural, but again, it's his speech, his party, can he cry if he wants to. >> anna navarro and maria cardona, thank you. >>> a commuter takes a terrifying fall onto the tracks, ooh! we'll tell you what happened next. i need you. i feel so alone. but you're not alone. i knew you'd come. like i could stay away. you know i can't do this without you. you'll never have to. you're always there for me. shh! i'll get you a rental car. i could also use an umbrella. fall in love with progressive's claims service. >>> 40 minutes past the hour. checking our top stories, look closely at this video
to push things back, the debt ceiling will be pushed off essentially for three months. is that good news or bad news? i mean what would you like to see happen right away? >> well, i do think that that just continues the uncertainty. you know, i think if there's a time frame and a time line and they can make real progress that that's a positive. i think to the extent that they just keep -- if they keep moving it out i think that's going to be a negative. you know, certainly it's not going to be resolved in the next few weeks. and so if they need to take a few months to really pull together, and really get the dialogue and the actions put in place, that we can make real progress, then i think that will be seen as positive. but i think it really does have to play out in the individual actions that are going to occur over the next few months in washington. >> we also, the gentleman from the transportation said that around the world, and we talk about austerity, a lot of the austerity in europe, i guess, was higher taxes. he said consumers here and around the world are going to have less disp
, they're going to introduce their bill, vote on their bill to extend the debt ceiling for three months, give themselves a little running room, but this is a president who is going to be aggressive about his agenda. he didn't just talk over republicans, he went right after them, talking about takers, s saying that's not what social security and medicare are, a jab not only at mitt romney but paul ryan, who he will be dealing with. >> when you have a guy who has bullied you in the schoolyard for four years and you finally fight the bully and you beat them like he just did in this election, you're not as afraid of the bully as you was or at least cautious. i think they bullied this president. he went to the mat and re-elected with a wider margin than george bush and saying the bullying is over. we're either going to fight or work together. >> the problem is both sides feel like they were bullied over the past four years and they've got to figure out how to work together over the next four years. i want to talk about yesterday with you quickly and open it up. it struck me as a son of the s
